EVSC 4260 - Ecology of Grasslands and Tundra

This course will emphasize plant community and ecosystem ecology of water-limited grassland systems and energy-limited tundra systems. Various topics will be covered including water, carbon, and nitrogen cycles, primary production, plant physiology, plant competition, and plant-herbivore interactions. We will examine the environmental factors that control these systems, as well as their geographic distribution throughout the globe. Prerequisite: EVSC 3200 or instructor permission.
